Calling all Steinbeck fans!

As one show opens another one begins! Rehearsals are underway for Bondage.  A new play by the incredibly talented Star Finch, Bondage tells the story of a mixed race family on a Caribbean island coming to terms with the horror of slavery.  Star has written a powerful and devastating story, our cast and crew is stellar, and I am so excited to tell you that we are being lead by the incredible Elizabeth Carter. Don't miss it friends! Buy your tickets here. 

Yo! My next project is one I am very very very excited for! I am going to be returning to Sacramento Theatre Company to play Ariel in their production of The Tempest! The first performance I ever saw was a production of The Tempest. It was free in a park and needless to say, it changed my life. Buy your tickets here! Watch me do some magic and speak some Shakespeare!

So very excited to begin working on my next project! Next month I begin rehearsals at Sacramento Theatre Company for their annual production of Cinderella as Goneril, an ugly stepsister. The show is being done in the style of British pantomime, a Christmas tradition on the other side of the Atlantic (check out the Wikipedia article here, to see a picture of the Queen herself, participating in a panto production).  We run Nov. 30-Jan. 1st.
